This contract has supported research in the areas of Software, Hardware, Theory, and Modelling. Each of these four areas has been developed in concert with the other three. Consequently, the on-going effort has been totally integrated in its results, with changing emphases across these areas as work progressed. This report, therefore, treats each area separately, and consists - in large part- in the presentation of published reports which occurred during the lifetime of the contract. Keywords: Auroral boundary; Defense meteorological satellite programs; Auroral oval; Coronal mass ejections; Solar filament; Interplanetary shock; Ground level events; Geomagnetic field; Cosmic ray equator; Cut-off rigidities; Solar radio bursts; Proton emissions.
